This music series is the perfect compliment to our restaurant offerings and will reinforce Metropolitan as a “destination” when planning an uptown evening.”
‘METLIVE’ will offer an exciting yet relaxing outdoor venue to listen to music, enjoy a glass of wine, view the Uptown skyline, take in the Little Sugar Creek Greenway at sunset or stay for dinner at one of the four restaurants at Metropolitan; Dressler’s, Pisces Sushi, Vivace and Zoës Kitchen.
